Windows 7 Not Fullscreen!

Hey,
I know this has already been posted before, but i tired the suggestions and none of them worked. When i play a game that should be fullscreen such as Crossfire or Combat Arms its not. On the left and right side its black and its not fullscreen even though fullscreen is checked in options. Any one know how to fix this? Its driving me insane!

-Thanks


Sorry the title is wrong, suppose to be "Windows 7 Games not fullscreen"

Nogoodnamesleft hi and welcome

we need more information before we can help you.

What is the monitor and its native resolution?

What is the video card and have you updated the driver?

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Let us know the answers

i fixed mine by changing the stretch options in the graphics card options for flat panel scaling

Ok sorry it took me so long to respond.
I have a Intel GMA 4500M and im guessing it is updated because windows update says theres no update for it.
Native resolution is 1366 x 768
Its a laptop so no monitor.
And how do you change it to stretch if you dont have nvida?

you can try this tutorial: Screen Resolution - Display Settings and try to set your resolution to the native 1366x768

I'm not too sure about stretch or fill the screen options for the GMA 4500M though since I have never used or owned a laptop with Intel onboard graphics
